HISTORY® and former Colombo crime family captain Michael Franzese helps examine the American Mafia in The Definitive Guide to the Mob arriving on DVD July 16 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. This HISTORY® special offers a one-of-a-kind view into the world of the country's most dangerous men and provides a realistic look at American mob life, stripped of the glitz and glamour of how Hollywood portrays the mafia. The Definitive Guide to the Mob DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.
What is life really like in the American mafia? How do you get in, get made and make money? And what happens when you get in too deep? The Definitive Guide to the Mob answers all these questions and more by turning to the ultimate authority: former Colombo family captain Michael Franzese. Michael grew up in this world, following in the footsteps of his father, Colombo family underboss Sonny Franzese, and earned more money for the organization than anyone since Al Capone. He also did what no 'Made' man has ever done before or since: he publicly quit La Cosa Nostra - without going into witness protection - and lived to tell the tale. This fast-paced two-hour special takes viewers on a step-by-step journey through the world's most famous criminal organization as lived by one of its most notorious members. You'll find out exactly how the mob works - and wonder how Michael Franzese is still alive.
